the obama campaign is now going to go by advertising in some of these states as well. minnesota, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are

at everything here's done and barack obama never really was prepared to be president of the united states. we took a chance. we took a chance on a man whose resumÉ would not have been approved to be head of any corporation in this country, a man who never ran a business, a man who never ran a military unit, a map who never met a payroll, a man who had no practical experience. sometimes somebody can have talents to be a great executive, never had a chance to show it before. well, he got his chance. you know, we have the highest unemployment for a sustained period since we had since the great depression. he had his chance, and now we got a chance to have a man who actually has been successful in life in a way that converts itself into being an effective executive putting practicality ahead of ideology which is what a president ultimately has to do. even a president i loved the most, the most conservative president probably we've had in the last hundred years always put practicality ahead of everything in making decisions for the american people. that's the difference in choice. one time though

obama winning by ten percentage points. unemployment in the state essentially mirroring what we have nation wild, 8.2% -- nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground than pennsylvania at least at the moment? >> guest: yeah. yeah, well, the essential difference is that ohio has a good many be more sort of moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats have done well is they've captured the suburbs of our state in these last, in the presidential elections in recent years, and that's been the defining difference. you've got that big swath of in the middle of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area there. obviously, with the cleveland area up in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and the cincinnati part out in the southwest being more republican, ohio just has a larger pool of these swin

, president obama is not push the law on that and fighting there will be a lot of states following essentially in that model. stand are you suggesting in mandate? markell: that is what the effort will care act does. >> moderator: we are going to move on to the next topic for the both of you. so, i am going to put this to you. beyond the governor's office there is a lot of chatter about your longevity in this office should you win a second term. everything from the cabinet post to being should there be a shift in delaware's congressional delegation? you have moved into a leadership position at the national governors' association. you have been touted as a leader among body elected officials and you've spoken of the party convention. i know that your opponent is talked about a pledge i don't want to get into the pledge. what i want to know because clearly if you are reelected you are a lame duck by the delaware law you have the four years and that's it. what is your plan beyond the next four years? markell: i love this job and we have significant work to do to continue to improve schools, to con

. this is something that mr. obama does. you know, i think the granholm stimulus that very simple that is a complete disaster for the state of michigan. we have enclosed factory, no jobs, a debt with this tax credit. this is not the type of thing that we need the government picking winners and losers on. >> moderator: mr. mcdowell come how do you see as solving these issues? mcdowell: we need to develop the energy sources of the future, wind and soil and biomass. we need to make sure that what we are doing now is done in a responsible manner. congressman dan benishek, last night he denied climate change. he said there is no climate change. every scientists outside of the ones that work for the oil industry, they have agreed that climate change is real and we need to do something about it. congressman benishek, i don't know how you can look towards change and clean energy bills when you are so closely tied with the energy industry. you have taken almost $100,000 in campaign contributions and even set up and said that the oil companies pay their fair share of taxes. $5 billion per year when us in this

obama? casey: well, monica, i think when you represent a state like ours, you've got to only -- you have to, i should say, make a commitment, but also have your work reflect the fact that you are an independent voice for the people of this state. i think i've done that. when i voted to make changes so we could have a stronger health care system or voted for measures that would strengthen and protect jobs, i've worked very hard to create jobs here in philadelphia at the shipyard where because we can deepen the channel, we can get bigger ships and more cargo. but in terms of differences, i think the differences that i've had with the president have been fairly substantial on some big economic issues. for example, the trade agreements. the president and a lot of powerful interests in washington, democrats and republicans, wanted us to have a trade agreement with south korea, colombia and panama. i voted against all three for about three basic reasons. number one, i think pennsylvania we get is the short end of that stick. we would not do well in terms of job creation because of that, and i

the policy involved is wrong. the misconception that because i supported president obama, they agree with him 98% of the time. i don't agree with my mother 98% of the time. much less the president the united states of america. i was disappointed when the president wouldn't support my spending cap. he was disappointed when i didn't go along with cap-and-trade. i was disappointed to refuse to quickly approve the keystone pipeline. there are differences. what i try to do as a member of the united states senate think about missouri people, and i don't worry so much about whose idea it is whether it's a republican or democratic idea. i don't worry about whether the leader is mad at me. i had time out in my caucus many times. especially when i was going after the appropriators on earmarks. i think the misconception that congressman akin is anxious to put out there that somehow i'm doing the bidding of my party or the president when i'm trying to do the bidding of missouri people. >> >> moderator: thank you. akin: destroy a chance to respond? >> i department say she agreed with president obama 98% o
